Are You Too Sexy for Your Whisk?
You’ve planned a seduction with pie -- more than once. Your curry makes them hurry home. It’s not uncommon to find your dinner guests uncontrollably swooning between courses or lapping at your apron strings.
And now, there’s a word for your kind -- gastrosexual.
According to UrbanDictionary.com, a “gastrosexual” is a guy “who sees cooking as a hobby and not just a chore,” someone who uses his culinary skills to win friends (and more importantly) lovers.
As a proud gastrosexual (actually I like to think of myself more of a temptress, known on a few continents for my morning-after apple coffee cake), I’m a bit flummoxed by the male-centric definition, as was radio cooking show host Lynne Rossetto Kasper, who had the presence of mind to rise above the soup scum and take gastrosexual matters into her own hands.
In fact, “The Splendid Table” hostess has just launched a “Gastrosexual of the Month” contest, one of the giggliest ideas I’ve heard in a good long while. Baby, if your kitchen moves are as slick as olive oil, Kasper wants to hear from you, whether you’re a lady or a gent.
But there's no time to waste, my culinary Casanovas; you’ve got until June 30 to submit an application, (which include questions such as “What do you consider the sexiest culinary tool?”); contestants with the hottest stuff will have the honor of appearing on Kasper’s show this summer.
Who said cooks don’t have more fun?
But more importantly, who's entering the contest? Any AMA reader who's chosen as a winner is guaranteed more ink in this here space.
